part in putting the city in the financial shape it's in today. >> some of the things i'm sure the office would like to forget. some of the scandals not related to him but $50 million embezzlementécase. workers were make improper adjustments. how serious are those allegations. do they obtain to his record? >> as far as had i see it no. he did an excellent job in his time. the harriet walter stealing $50 million. but over a period of years. we put in place a number of safeguards since that time in order to make sure people don't steal money. we've had more recent instance stealing 3 or $400,000.

understands and capable in municipal state and county finance. but someone who has excellent relationships with wall street. congress and the dc council. and that's a despaired group if there ever was one. that's the kind of person we need to step into this job. the city is doing great though. 50 some cranes. the development is taking place in record amounts which will only make the city more stable and more financially stable. having said that, we still struggle with the school system that is one of the worst in the country. areas in our city, neighbors not as safe as we want them to be. not enough affordable housing. not enough jobs for people. particularly used to the river, employment rate can rise. having said that, in balance, the city is on the right track and we need to keep building on what we've done in the past.
